Customer Question
I can not get iMovie...
I can not get iMovie 2016 to recognize any of the music from iTunes. Latest versions for both applications. Running a new Macbook pro with 2.8 G and Core i7, 16 gig of ram. I have done all the normal procedures except reloading the software. Got any ideas?

Hi Cliff,

Trashing your Preferences file should help.

If you aren't sure how to do this, please see: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-4061

Let me know if that works for you?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
